Pacific Electric no. 1203 heads a five-car troop train where it pauses in San Dimas on its way to Los Angeles. The two PE employees (from left to right) are David Gillespie of Pasadena and Mr. Leath, while the soldier is none other than the well-known PE historian and collector Ray Younghans. Unknown photographer, taken July 11, 1943.

    I wonder if that guy in the Model A is wanting to get across the tracks?

    Note that 1203 has had the restroom removed, but does not have the “Daylight Orange” stripe on the side. The train appears to have two trailers and two more motor cars. The second car is probably 1247.
